Planned on being there but on my way to work in the morning the bearing in my water pump decided to let go. Coolant everywhere. Spent my time after work putting in a new water pump, thermostat, and serpentine belt.
Hey everyone! The meet went as well as could be expected I suspect given how the weathers been.
Pauly's partner in crime Dneff
And myself were all present.
Pretty much we all discussed the typical jeep stuff, what we're looking to do with our jeeps where everyone's been wheeling and just how everyone's been along with any funny stories we all had! We did however decided that earlier, around two or so, on a weekend is the best time to meet up given the absence of everyone!
For muddy, dude that blows, literally and figuratively.
Simcraft if you need a hand on the move I'm sure some of us could help!
Dude33 no problem work trumps meeting. I don't think anyone would argue that!
Matt devils hopyard is an excellent idea! There's also a couple of state forests in that area I use to frequent as a kid that has a fresh water beach and some cook out stuff. That might make for a nice meet as well in the spring/summer time. Awesome idea!
Next months meet is still in the air I would to start getting everyone's availability for the meet so that we can plan a Saturday or Sunday meet up in the afternoon! Anyone who had an idea of a different location feel free to throw it up!
Thanks for update had a bad day yesterday caught a ice chunk with my windshield it also bent frame witch I just replaced from my roll over .. So im back in the shop at lest I know how to put it all back together ..
Hey guys, sorry I missed the last meetup, didn't catch the thread in time. Weekends work best for me, but in a pinch I could probably do a weekday night. The Wallingford DD worked for me as far as distance, but as it gets nicer outside we should definitely meet somewhere less paved.
Maybe we could do meets at locations where people are based... Might get a better turn out that way or different faces. Like we could do the Wallingford DD and like cabelas east Hartford for people that way... Just an idea. We could do soapstone mountain when it opens. Super nice place with the look out tower and trails. What I'm gettin at is maybe we could have a location in every region and switch them off. For me I know I could never make a 5pm in Wallingford. I work till 430 and that's in east Hartford. I donno just a thought
That's why I suggested maybe sat. Or sun. At early afternoon but I think we need to take a pole and see what is the best: time, location, and day. Personally sat. Or sun. Any time before 8 is good wallingford or north.
I fully intended to switch locations I asked everyone for ideas prior to this past meet for locations. The greater part of people interested said Wallingford on a weekday earlier then six. That's the only reason we repeated the same location. I had originally stated that moving it around the state to other locations is the only what to accommodate everyone and to keep it fair. We just have to remember that it is still cold out and we need a place in doors to sit!
So lets come up with some dates and locations for the march meet up! As the weather gets warmer it'll be alot easier.
So everyone put in at least one location and 2-3 dates and times that will work best for march.
Would like to put something for March in are area I have started putting thing together for s raffle to raises $ for a charty and maybe even bring some parts so we can include a swap meet as well Wallingford a little far for me and I'm hoping that maybe we can get it somewhere in between that would be great and if we get our group together and come up with a name maybe we can get some stickers made or something so we can raise money so we rent a areas. I know cranberry park is out of your way but they have a big parking lot and we can barbecue and check out all the rigs in fairfeild I hang out their a lot and know every one their it a great place for a weekend get together would like to tet a chapter in this area ... feed back please ..
I totally spaced on the last meet, sorry guys! My computer kicked the bucket and my phone is half way there so it's getting harder for me to get on here. I'll be getting a new computer soon but until then I'll try to check this every day..
